NBA Rumors: Could Mavericks Waive Dahntay Jones?

The Dallas Mavericks haven't talked about Dahntay Jones much since they acquired him in a trade last week, which makes this tweet from Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe all the more interesting:

Taking on Jones' contract was likely the price the Mavericks paid to acquire Darren Collison from the Indiana Pacers, as Indiana could have just signed Ian Mahinmi outright otherwise.

As a basketball player, Jones doesn't have much left, as the 31-year old guard averaged 5 points, 2 rebounds and 1 assist on 40% shooting last season. He could still offer Dallas three-point shooting and hard-nosed defense in a small role ala DeShawn Stevenson, but letting him go would be no great loss either.

For all the latest news and notes on the Mavericks free agency plans, stay tuned to the SB Nation Dallas story-stream as well as Mavs Moneyball.
